Salah in Rawdatul Jannah

Question

Can you share the full Hadith where Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) confirmed performing two rakat nafl in this area would be like performing salah in Jannah, and confirm whether it is authentic, please. JazakAllah.

 

Answer

I haven’t seen a Hadith that states the above clearly.

However, this is derived from the Hadith that names that spot as the garden of Jannah.

Several Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘The area between my mimbar and my house/grave is a garden from Jannah.’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1888 – with Fathul Bari, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 3355- Commentary of ‘Allamah Nawawi and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 7861. Also see: Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 32316 with the footnotes of Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah and Sharh Mushkilil Athar, Hadith: 2874 and 2879)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
